We asked Uxbridge Library staff what their pets would read if they could read. Here’s the list:

Lola would read Animals at War. Airedales, like Lola here, were one of the first breeds of dog to go into the war.

What would Smidge read? Why The Cat on the Mat by Briam Wildsmith of course!

This dog’s choice of book also serves as advice to its owners, Let Sleeping Dogs Lie by Rita Mae Brown.

Monkey here is clearly considering the universe. We recommend A Brief Hisory of Time by Stephen Hawking for any curious cats.

My Book Moment Unboxing – February 2019

Such a great blog post about #MyBookMoment!
Make sure you don’t miss you on this fantastic book box subscription

Jo's Book Blog

I’m thrilled to be sharing the contents of the first My Book Moment box which I received last week.  You can find out more about My Book Moment at their website mybookmoment.com, but this is a new monthly box where you can choose between popular fiction or crime and thriller.  Whichever option you choose, the book will be a new paperback release and the box will also come with a hot drink and snack plus a third, mystery item.  At £12 per box, I think that this makes a great gift for the book lover in your life, or for when you fancy a little treat for yourself! 😉

There is a resignation about life that exudes from the main character who narrates in first person. Neve, is stuck. She drifts… Continue reading First Love by Gwendoline Riley #BookReview #Baileys Prize

Seal Skin by Su Bristow #Bookreview

   A beautiful and haunting novel that will stay with you long after you have finished. When I initially started this book I was excited as I love fantasy, especially when in real and contemporary settings, but...when I reached the end of the first chapter I was shocked and stunned. The main character Donald does… Continue reading Seal Skin by Su Bristow #Bookreview
